                      The fact, there isn't a tray under the working surface for jewellery is mind boggling to me. Why not try collect all the gold dust etcetera?! You can make a tray similar to a keyboard table. Something you pull out once seated. To collect all the golden dust. Over time, it will surely collect into quite a chunk of metal in gram.

                              Why not 3D print the ring, then lost wax cast it, near net shape?

                                Amazing. Totally love the idea and effort of making your own engagement and wedding rings. Honestly I am happy jealous. This has been a bit of a romantic dream of mine for about 15 years to happen to me when I get proposed.

                                                My husband and I made each others wedding rings. We found a little goldsmith who would instruct us and provide us with tools. It was sooo much fun :)

                                                            A hammered finish carries a little more meaning when you or your significant other is the one who hammered it.
